This weekend I decided to rent a Fusion Hybrid instead of Prius (which I usually) rent. Advertised MPG is a lie. I traveled almost 1500 miles over 3 days. Mountains, hills, flats. It could get average advertised MPG only downhill. I have been cruising most of the time. the combined average MPG came to only 37.1 Where Prius would always go 50+. All the extra features include a touchscreen display that will irritate you with all the fingerprints on it. The trunk is non-existent, so do not plan on bringing your gold clubs, they will not fit and you will have to put them inside. The bottom line was $30 extra in gas I otherwise would have saved by renting a Prius (cost the same at the rental place).Report it
